An Evening of Coffee and Conversation

Join the Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society for an “Evening of Coffee and Conversation” Thursday, March 12th at 7:00 p.m. Guest speaker will be Marilyn Rosser Strickler. She is a descendant of the Rosser Family Lumber Company founders. The Rosser Lumber Co. was part of Arcanum Community from 1880 until 1962. The Rosser family was very appreciative of the business received from the community. They return the dividend to the people in gifts to the school, Trinity Methodist Church and civic programs for all the residents to enjoy.

Mrs. Strickler is the holder of many of the family artifacts and stories. From her rich legacy and heritage, she is very well versed in the history of Arcanum. Marilyn is an Arcanum High School graduate and after college, she made her home in Dayton, Ohio with her husband, Dr. Jack Strickland and raised two children. Never forgetting her roots and holding the Arcanum community dear to her heart, she has much to share. In return, the audience is invited to bring their history, family connections and stories, it will be a conversational evening for all to enjoy. The historical society extends a special invitation to the public and welcomes their attendance.

Looking for something extra to do, visit the Arcanum Wayne Trial Historical Society at 123 W. George St. tour the building and view the displays or visit the resource rooms. The building will be open for visitation on Saturday morning 9:00- 12:00 on March 7th. Also, watch for announcements of upcoming programs, activities and new ventures offered by the society to the community for the summer months ahead.
